Question:
Hi If you breed two bullfrogs, one being albino (a true albino with pink eyes) with a blue bullrog what would be the genetic make up of the offspring? As in would any normal frogs be possible?



Replies:
If the albino frog and the blue bullfrog are of the same species, then all of the offspring would exhibit the wildtype phenotype but they would all carry the gene for albinism and therefore be heterozygous.
